Daniel Radcliffe rumoured to play Freddie Mercury in new biopic

London, Sept. 22 : Daniel Radcliffe is reportedly being rolled in to play famously British musician Freddie Mercury in an upcoming film, based on the early days of 'Queen'.


A source told the Daily Star that the Hollywood bosses are ready to spend a fortune on the 'Harry Potter' actor if he agrees to do the role.

Despite his youth, the 24-year-old star, who is a gay rights advocate, impressed movie bosses with his portrayal of gay poet in the movie 'Kill Your Darlings', the source asserted.

The insider added that Radcliffe is closer in height to Freddie than Sacha Baron Cohen, who turned down the role due to "creative differences" with the producers, and can really sing, too.
